1.     Music Festival

It was non-stop music for 3 whole fun packed days in Dartmouth.  With over 100 events it was impossible to see them all.  Here are some of the wonderful times, be sure to come next year 16, 17 & 18 May 2008!  HMS Kent and Page & Moy 'Ocean Majesty' came to visit!


2.    Galleries Week

This Friday 25th begins another Galleries Week with special exhibitions in various galleries. On Friday they will open from 6-9pm for music, wine, and hopefully the odd sale!  It's a great time to come a meet your friends and visit 12+ galleries over an hour or two.  You will  find it relaxing, stimulating and generally good fun to be part of the buzz!!  Thanks to Simon Drew, Trish Thomas  Baxters and the Coombe Gallery for inviting us. 

In 2005 in his 60th year, the artist Paul Riley spent a month trekking the Annapurna range in the Himalayas reaching the Thorongla Pass at an altitude of 5,460 metres. Four months later he crossed the Pacific Ocean from San Francisco to Hong Kong as lecturer on the world cruise of P+O liner Aurora.  See the results at the Coombe Gallery.

Baxters on Foss St is holding a mixed exhibition featuring work beginning with the letter B in a variety of mediums. Several of the artists will be there so come along and meet them.

If you don't want to miss this great event, why not come down.  For self catering click here,  for B&B click here,  for Hotels click here For a Tourist Guide to Dartmouth click here.

6.   RNLI Canoe racing

John Fenton reports:  Dartmouth's new lifeboat crew found themselves up the creek with a paddle this weekend at the annual Canoe racing event hosted by Canoe Adventures at the Maltsters Arms, Tuckenhay. Lifeboat crew members, Chris Tracey, Ian Watton, Kevin John, Chris Wallace, Mark Strudwick, Pete Callis and Andy Carter with Dartmouth Lifeboats very own Press Officer, John Fenton and supporter Rob Perry drafted in at the last minute, made up a formidable nine strong team.

After closely fought races against ‘White Feather’ and ‘Stoke Up’ the crew powered home to their first victory against ‘Luscombe Might’, coming home a full 20 seconds in front. However, their luck didn’t hold and they were beaten in their final race by a canoe full of Morris Dancers, ‘Great Western’. Crew captain Chris Tracey said ‘It was a great day, The team worked well together and we are already looking forward to coming back next year.’ Our thanks to the Maltsters Arms and Phil Sheardown of Canoe Adventures who reports that this year’s event has raised £831.50, a new record!
